Tina Margrander, ASID

After moving to Lee county with my family in 1994 and graduating from Edison College with an Associates of Arts degree in Architectural Design, I graduated Cum Laude from University of Florida with a Bachelor of Design and a Major in Interior Design.

I then received my certification from the National Council for Interior Design Qualification. Currently, I have been designing interiors for over 14 years making Lee and Collier County a more beautiful place to live for my clients. My experience includes new construction, interior remodels and interior updating and merchandising.

I enjoy the entire process of design, from getting to know my client to understanding how they live and use their space so I can improve its function and design. My greatest reward is seeing how excited my clients are when they see their vision has become a reality.
